My pick this week:
Laura Hickman, Tracy Hickman
Series: The Nightbirds #1
Publication date: July 1st 2014
by Tor Books
Gamin, Maine, is a remote seaside town where everyone seems to know Ellis Harkington better than she knows herself—but she doesn’t remember any of them.
Unknown events have robbed Ellis of her memory. Concerned individuals, who purport to be her friends and loved ones, insist that she simply needs to recuperate, that her memories may return in time, but refuse to divulge what has brought her to this state. For her own sake, so they say.
Ellis finds herself adrift in a town of ominous mysteries, cryptic hints, and disturbingly familiar strangers. The Nightbirds, a clique of fashionable young men and women, claim her as one of their own, but who among them can she truly trust? And what of the phantom suitor who visits her in her dreams? Is he a memory, a figment of her imagination, or a living nightmare beyond rational explanation?
Only her lost past hold the answers she seeks—if she can uncover its secrets before she fall prey to an unearthly killer.
This sounds like my kind of creepeh! Plus just knowing it’s from the horror guru themselves – Tor Books – makes me want to read it all the more! The authors described it as “dark and disturbing” on a cover reveal post I saw. Cmon, y’all know me by now! How could I not want to read this?
